Probably representing Margaret of Gloucester, the wife of Robert II, baron of Neubourg, this effigy is shown in the aristocratic costume of the period. From her belt are suspended a purse, or aumônière, containing coins for the needy, a needle case, and an eating knife in its sheath.
The effigy rests on a modern base.
